Overview

Concrete, one of the world’s most widely used construction materials because its components are easily available, inexpensive, and its application covers a wide variety of buildings and civil engineering infrastructure works. However, some of the characteristics of the concrete are low tensile strength and it is a brittle material, prone to damage when subjected to explosion.

Join ICE East Midlands Graduates and Students Committee for this presentation focused on the development of blast resistant concrete using hybrid fibres.

Developed by the researchers from National Defense University Malaysia (UPNM), this presentation will focus on the current development of blast resistant concrete - an innovative construction material and its potential to be used as a blast resistant concrete for application in high-risk buildings such as government and commercial buildings, airports and more, providing safer building infrastructure.
